I know this isn't what you wanna hear but you're going to need a plumber to come out and fix that. It sounds like you're water is hooked to the freon line and your freon is hooked to your water line. If it's been hooked up for a while it's probably from when it was moved/bumped/pulled out, and the line got a kink in it and is leaking at the kink. If that's the case...you'll have to buy an at least 12' long 3/8"or1/4"CLEAR PLASTIC hose (your local hardware store or plumber supply should carry it) either way call a plumber to install, that freon is nasty stuff (poisonous)

Amana freezer forms ice on the bottom. We have taken it apart, cleared ice from coils and drain, turned down freezer temp, but it still happens. Fridge works fine. Any other ideas?


When you see that ice forms on the bottom of your freezer it is most likely means that the drain hose of the fridge is blocked.
You will need to take the panel inside the freezer off, clear all the ice and pour hot water into the drain hole until you hear the water coming out at the beck where the compressor is located.
The next step would be running a 1/4" hose thru that hole.
Good luck.

The water dispenser is really slow coming out and it takes however to make ice. There is no kink in the water line to the fridge.


water stopped dispersing out of water dispense, No indication as to why. New filter was instlled, checked water line, no leakage indicated, ice maker had been making ice prior to this, turned off ice maker to avoid motor burn out.

Water leaking inside our fridge. kenmore fridge. about 8and a half years old.


There is a drain line that discharges water from the freezer when the defrost cycle kicks in. It will be a plastic tube that runs from the bottom of the freezer to a tray under the fridge. It has come loose or become plugged I always blow air thru the line and make sure it is not loose. You can also get leakage from an ice maker but this problem will usually show up as ice formingin the freezer first. good luck

Usually that is from the water line freezing up. Behind your refrigerator drawers there is either a plastic tank or a coil of plastic tube........That is where the water runs so your dispenser puts out chilled water. If your fridge gets too cold that will form ice inside and stop the water from flowing. You can defrost it with a hair dryer or just let the fridge sit open for a few hours. Another thing could be the water valve. When you press the water lever on the dispenser do you hear a noise? Kind of a humming noise. Well, that is your water valve, so if you hear it then it is probably working.

Jenn Air fridge water dispensor stopped working


Hi: You press the switch and it makes a faint humming noise. That tells me the switch on the front panel is ok. The switch for the ice and water is actually on the bottom of the ref. The internal system of the ref is not under city water pressure. Ice is made so that's ok. There is a solenoid where the water attaches to the fridge down below which can fail. Just for giggles try tapping the switch with the plastic handle of a screwdriver. To loosen any scale that might have built up. As I'm unemployed also I'm giving you that trick. Otherwise I would just say replace it. I hope this helps, Jeff

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Check the trap door where the ice drops through, it might be stuck in the open position, solenoid that operates the door may be bad.
